Google Pixel XL price: how much does it cost?

There was a time when Nexus phones were seen as affordable alternatives to big name Android flagships, but that's not the case with the Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL.

The Google Pixel XL comes in two sizes – 32GB or 128GB. The 32GB version costs $769 (£719, AU$1,269) unlocked, and is available direct from Google's store.

If you want the extra space of the 128GB model, you'll have to pay $869 (£819, AU$1,419). That's roughly in line with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge or even the iPhone 7 Plus, but then the Pixel XL is a similarly large and high-end handset.
